Reinventing stealth in 2D with Mark of the Ninja

Although there are plenty of ninja games, quite few depict the ninja as the master of stealth and trickery he ought to be. And stealth games are precious rare in the platformer genre. But with its upcoming Mark of the Ninja, Klei Entertainment wanted to try a couple new things.

Nels Anderson is leading the game's design, and even tackled the early legs of the project all on his own. It's the first time Vancouver-based Klei has done multiple projects at once; work on Mark of the Ninja became possible once Shank 2 was underway. Anderson says his studio would rather encourage cool ideas when they're possible rather than wait for some unspecified "right time." (Mark of the Ninja, Xbox 360)

I always found it odd how there's so many ninja games and yet almost none of them actually depict ninjas being stealthy at all.

I want another Tenchu game.
